  1. Beautiful job as always, Tolga...wonderful work. Always enjoy seeing your builds.

  2. Well done Ulgur as usual.

  3. Pristine work, Tolga. Very nice.

  4. Nice looking Mossie ! The photos are top notch too ! I really like it.

  5. Very nice Tolga!
    That's a great looking Mosquito dude. 🙂

  6. Tolga, lovely Mosquito! Even with the bulbous nose.

  7. Beautiful work, Tolga, I'd love to see what you'd make of Tamiya's 1/32 scale Mosquito, in fact, I'd love to see what anybody can make of this kit. Correct if me I'm wrong, but we are yet to see a review/build of this kit on iModeler.

    • Thanks George
      Not sure about Tamiya s 1/32 Mosquito. Too big and too expensive. Maybe later in the future:)
      But I have at least two Mosquito projects in 1/48 for the near future

  8. Very nice Tolga! I like the way you picked out the underside panel lines and details with the grey pin wash. Some folks deride the practice for being unrealistic, but it helps bring dark monochromatic schemes to life! I'm a fan.

  9. Thanks for your comments

  10. The wooden wonder with a wart on its nose. The radar takes away the sleek look of the Mosquito but, made it into a real killer of the night. Some strong photography and modeling Tolga. Always a treat seeing your work.
